I'm a huge fan of Sam Rosen. He's not one of the best in the league, I could easily name 5-10 play by play announcers who are better.

But Sam is OUR play by play announcer....someone a lot of us have grown up with. Even when I hear his voice on NFL telecasts I think Ranger hockey.

He's also one of the nicest guys ever...

My dad always talked about the time (probably late 80's or so) he brought me to a college basketball game at the Meadowlands arena. We were in the first row behind the boards, and Sam was announcing the game on TV. In between games (it was a doubleheader) Sam came walking by, and my dad stopped Sam to say hello....and Sam spent the entire time in between games discussing Ranger hockey with my dad...something my dad never forgot.

Dad always said Sam gave up a bathroom break to talk Ranger hockey...now THAT'S a nice guy!!!
